Three 60 × 15 mm Petri dish lids were placed inside a large 150 × 15 mm Petri dish as described in Methods. For sclerotia development 104spores of A. parasiticus SU-1 were center inoculated onto one lid that contained coconut agar medium. For volatiles generation, two other lids contained either ΔveA inoculated on YES agar medium, or SU-1 inoculated on coconut agar medium (control), or SU-1 inoculated on YES agar medium (control), or YES agar medium only (control). The cultures were grown in the dark at 30°C for 9 days. The experiment was performed in triplicate. The number of sclerotia developed by SU-1 grown on coconut agar medium per plate is presented. n\e, not estimated.
